The Giant Claw is available as part of a 4-movie package of Sam Katzman productions, released by Columbia to DVD a few years ago. Revenge of the Virgins was released with a beautiful print on DVD by Something Weird Video together with another movie and the usual collection of trailers and shorts. I'm semi-retired and basically poor, but hey, I find a lot of these things at greatly reduced prices from Amazon Marketplace sellers and get 'em there. My DVD collection is made up mostly of what other people would consider junk (b-movies from the mid-1940s to mid-1960s, obscure tv shows from the 50s and early 60s), but it's more entertaining to me than sitting through bloated crap like Star Trek 2009, Transformers, Superman Returns, Lord of the Rings, Avatar, etc., so...to each his own. :)

Glad to hear Something Weird has upgraded "Revenge of the Virgins" on DVD. Their VHS edition is all-but unwatchable. Then again, with this flick maybe it helps.

A lot of Something Weird's products have been upgraded on dvd since Image Entertainment bought them out. They used to be an independant distributor like Sinister Cinema.

Thanks for the info. Guess I'll take a second look at their catalog.

Look quickly, because the professionally-produced Something Weird Video DVDs (most of them double or triple feature discs with lots of extras), were distributed by Image Entertainment, but are now out of print and selling out at reduced prices on sites like Amazon.com, etc.

Most of the DVDs on the Something Weird website are DVD-Rs, with cheap menus and are overpriced (like Sinister Cinema's DVD-R discs, sadly). However, Sinister has much better and faster service, and if you take advantage of one of their sales (like their July "10 DVD-Rs for $98") you can really get a lot for your bucks (if you have any bucks, that is).

Hope it made sense. I'm actually selling one of my computers so I can order some Sinister Cinema DVDs before the July special ends. Talk about b-movie devotion! lol

The rumor has been that Ed Wood wrote the film, but I'm not sure I buy it. A lot of people have tacked Ed's name onto films just to attract interest and boost sales.
